The chronicle of this infernal journey contains XXXIV cantos and lead you to the Acheron, to the Limbos and to Hell. In the Divine Comedy, Dante situate this place at the center of earth, those infernous circles where he imagine to let suffer, those he would have liked to send in Hell. In the Human Comedy, I let you find somewhere on this earth this blessed place you walk around without any doubt, where you pretend to be the navel of the world. In this infernal Journey, Marco is accompagnated by Baudelaire, its fatefull gourou.
The tale of the Human Comedy to the Purgatory contains XXXIII cantos which the first XIV cantos happens in the Antepurgatory. Purgatory is on earth somewhere under Terrestrial Paradise, and if you look closely, you could still find it if you know where to find the Terrestrial Paradise and to leave into the clockroom, your pretention to convert the world to your faith. Baudelaire is still here, Marco's guide for this journey.
We are finally into Paradise and I will not tell you, dear reader, where you can find this blessed place described in the Divine Comedy and that this extensive and Divine Tragedy has let me no memory that can be translate into mortal words. The tale contains XXXIII cantos in a mystical procession full of carnal evocations. Here, it is Jeanne the Virgin who accompanate the paces of Marco in a loving canto that wants to be eternal.
Un-happy traveler who pretends to return to Earth as if earth was no other place than Hell, Purgatory or Paradise, since you inhabit these places only by the choice you make and not by that imposed by your masters, your mistresses, your mothers, your ministries, your magistaries. There is here no other Canto than the Hundred cantos already visited in Hell, Purgatory and Paradise.
